The Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act (OCILLA), a portion of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act known as DCMA 512, is a U.S. Federal law that provides a safe harbor to online service providers that promptly take down content if someone alleges it infringes their copyright. In accordance with this Act, EPRI has implemented procedures for receiving written notification of claimed infringements and for processing such claims. If you believe your copyrights are being infringed by material posted on the EPRI website by a user of the site, please fill out a Notice of Infringement form and fax it to the EPRI DCMA Registered Agent at (704) 595-2868.
The information requested by the Notice of Infringement form substantively complies with the safe harbor provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3)(A), which provides:
